When enthusiasts found out the FK8 Civic Type R was coming to the US, the sport-compact market changed. For the first time since 2001, the “Type R” nameplate was coming back to the US, and for the first time the US was getting a Civic Type R, plus it was the first turbocharged Type R ever. Needless to say, the hype was insane, and the FK8 has been wildly popular in the aftermarket. Sure, it’s a fantastic car, but that doesn’t mean aftermarket parts can’t make it even better.
Honda did a pretty decent job with the OEM brake rotors on the FK8, but there is some weight that could be shed off, plus improved brake cooling would mean more consistent lap times at the track, something everybody wants. This is where WP Pro comes in with their brand new two-piece rotors for the FK8. The big benefit to WP Pro’s rotor is the two-piece design which allows for greater weight savings. “How much weight savings,” you might ask? Over 0.5lbs per corner saved! That’s over 2lbs of rotational mass gone, resulting in better braking, turn in, and acceleration.
Aside for the weight savings, these WP Pro rotors go through an extensive manufacturing process, resulting in very strong rotors. The drilled and slotted design helps improve heat dissipation, as do the curved vanes. If you’ve been looking to upgrade your FK8 brakes without stepping up to a full big brake kit, these new WP Pro rotors are the way to go!
